Since 2019, LGBTI+ Elders Social Dance Clubs, part of The Coming Back Out Ball have been presented all around the country for the whole rainbow community, creating a welcoming space for this community to come together, share stories and meet new people.

Tiu Makkonen is the photographer in residence with The Coming Back Out Ball project. They along with filmmakers Graeme Roger and Ania Urbanowska have created, in collaboration with members of the dance club, a multimedia exhibition Portraits of an LGBTI+ Generation.

Social Dance Club members were invited to have their photo taken and be interviewed in a place that means something to them, and their experience as an LGBTI+ person.

This series of up to 10 portraits of Scottish LGBTI + Elders, reflecting their own personal experiences, will give us a sense of the varied, rich and remarkable lives of the many LGBTI+ elders living across Scotland.

The exhibition runs at Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow from Sat 26 June – Sun 29 August. The exhibition is free but tickets must be booked in advance from the GOMA website.

The exhibition has previous been shared online with a selection of these portraits exhibited as part of Highland Pride at Eden Court in February 2020.

A National Theatre of Scotland and All The Queens Men co-production, in partnership with Eden Court and Luminate, and in association with Glasgow City Council.
